The Mercedes-Benz CLS is a quite attractive sedan, particularly in its first generation guise. With flowing yet aggressive bodywork, the sleek sedan looks both sporty and refined and, to our eyes, way better than its successor.
Sadly, the owner of this CLS550 from New Jersey has ruined the good looks of the car with a number of questionable modifications.
The bodywork of the car shared on Reddit has been tweaked and a set of wheel covers fitted at the rear. Even when done right, like on the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta, wheel covers don’t look pretty, and when they’re just tacked on like these ones, are just awful.
The weird ‘upgrades’ don’t stop there, as the owner has plastered an AMG badge onto the trunklid (in the wrong position…) and stuck on a number of chrome trimmings, including on the rear decklid and around the triangular taillights.
Labeling this thing hideous would be the understatement of the year. It also goes to show that money are not necessarily accompanied by good taste…
